    Briefly, Cardinal Dolan – how about the Synod take action of Familiaris consortio, nos. 65-70. Perhaps if our chief pastors will take strong, courageous, developmental action to strengthen marriage as per St. John Paul’s “suggestion,” we won’t need ANOTHER Synod on the Family in another 35 years. It is doable. I’ve implemented part of it in the past, but it will not be easy. You are on record as understanding the vocation of marriage in relation to celibate vocations. Please see Ennio Mastrioanni article Christian Marriage & Family: A Challenging Enterprise. The Synod remains in my prayers.

    Marriage is not an easy vocation but, with the help of God, love, patience and a sense humor it is well worth it.
    God willing we will be married 67 years on November 6th.

    This is very encouraging but I wish I heard this from the Pontiff himself.
